The Eagle has landed

The Teenaged Man Boy (Alaric) has taken that last step.  It was a big step, which had several parts.  After driving out to the Davis County Courthouse and spending Some Time loading these into two trucks, Alaric borrowed a power washer and tested out cleaning some of these voting signs.

Alaric immediately started washing--mostly so he could play with the powerwasher first.

He got a bunch of the scouts from his troop (plus Nick) to help out.

Look at all the industrious people cleaning signs.

There was also quite a bit of repair work going on.

And, in the end, a shiny field of cleaned and repaired voter signs.  Election Day is coming up!

There are around 120 signs.

My job was mostly in moving signs in and out of the trucks.  I learned to wear work gloves, since those signs are real finger-pinchers.  Youch!

In any case, after helping drive them all back out the the courthouse Friday morning, Alaric should now be completely done with the requirements to get his Eagle.  I’m relieved and proud.
